Recently our team was teaching Phase 1 in Lusi for the first time to two small outreaches. After being taught the story about Zacchaeus wanting to see Jesus passing so he climbed up in a tree, Anthony said, “Just like Zacchaeus found his tree, I need to find my tree, so that Jesus can find me.”
On October 14th we reached the “Head of the Talk”, our team taught, and a group of Mouk Actors from another village did a dramatic presentation of the Last Supper, Jesus’ Betrayal, 2 Trials, Jesus’ Crucifixion, Death, Burial and Resurrection in the Lusi language. After the teaching was over, 30 new believers stood and gave their testimonies. 7 Lusi, a Tolai woman, and many Mouk children — representing the dual nature of this outreach — the Mouk are reaching out to their own children, the next generation other people groups.
Long story short, Jesus did find Anthony that day, and Anthony didn’t have to climb a tree
in order for Jesus to do it.
